Promoter Eddie Hearn believes Olympic hero Luke Campbell has all the hallmarks to become the complete package as he prepares to make his professional debut.

Almost 12 months on from taking bantamweight gold in London, Campbell returns to the ring at Hull Kingston Rovers' MS3 Craven park ground for his clash against Andy Harris, which will be his first in the full-time ranks.

"We are talking about the most successful amateur boxer ever.

There is a lot of weight on his shoulders but he's such a talented fighter and as a commercial entity and commercial brand he is exactly what we are looking for in boxing.
